The Endless Chain (Know-How Series) by Rex Taylor & Will Ayling & Lewis Ganson & Fred Lowe

This is not a magic trick but a carnival game, a con game, where the operator can decide if you should win or not. Everything looks fair and above board, but there is simply no chance for the mark to win. It looks so innocent, a ball-chain loop, put out on the table in a figure eight. One loop in the eight catches your finger the other does not. You have to find the one that catches your finger. Only problem is that you will never find it if the operator so decides.

This game is sometimes called Loopy Loop, Figure Eight, the Chain Swindle, or Pricking the Garter. You will find in this ebook several well honed routines with patter and moves to fully control the chain.

For the prop please see our endless nickle plated ball chain, which is the ideal loop to perform this effect.

This publication was part of the Supreme 'Know-How' Series, edited and written by Will Ayling. It was the follow up to the famous Teach-In Series written by Lewis Ganson after Ganson died. (We have all the Teach-Ins available as ebooks.)

1st edition 1983; original 44 pages; PDF 48 pages.
